Remarks: ...A litte bit more, a little bit more... Flaring before touchdown. Good old ASK13. Generations of pilots, including me, learned to fly on D-3746. This one is called "Buale" in memory of a Fritz Hübsch . He still holds the record for the longest aerotow in history.
Remarks: An overview of Augsburg airport taken from round about 1500ft AGL. You can see that there is a lot of weekendtraffic going on. Even the three gliderstrips south of the concrete runway are active. Not much gliders on ground because they are all around me on this great day! Lets call EDMA the german home of Beechcraft because the most bigger hangars next to the runway are used by them for maintanance.
To bad that the only Runway is just 1280m long, so there is no chance for an economic operation of an A320 or a B737.
Remarks: A nice day for soaring. D-4662 "BB" is taking me to Donauwörth here. Even if the Aircraft is no the newest, it was build in the 80's, there are a couple of nice instruments.
We have a LX5000 with a build in GPS logger and it is showing us that we are aboud 5km NW of Augsburg airport. The aircraft is loosing height and we expect 1 m/s thermal in front of us.
BB is also equiped with a FLARM collision warning system wich is GPS based and should be build in in every GA aircraft if you ask me!
Remarks: Nordwind B757 is lining up for Takeoff on Runway. The Dash 8 pictured will take off in the opposite direction just after that. It is interesting how effective the Salzburg controllers use their limited capacity to manage the chartertraffic.
